Unless the images are copyrighted, you can use them. It is courteous though to acknowledge the source and even to try to make sure you are acknowledging the original source.

I really get annoyed when bloggers don’t acknowledge the source of their pics or ideas.

I run a wedding Tumblr, and I always source all my photos, back to the orignal post if possible. So if I can find the photographer, I source back to them. I do it as a courtesy, because I’ve had my own photos taken from the internet without credit and I didn’t like that feeling. So I credit everyone. But sometimes I end up skipping a step, skipping over the blog or Pintrest or whatever to straight to the photographer.

Not sure if you’re planning to use your blog to apply for WB but I just wanted to mention that if you are, you’ll want to keep track of your sources as best as possible! I spent ages after I was accepted sourcing photos to make them bloggable, and now any photos we blog that aren’t our own require permission from the photographer. Just something to keep in mind. 🙂

@Mrs. Dragon:  yes, yes! I’m in the middle of doing this now, and it’s taking me *forever* I thought I was being really good about it too, but you really have to be on top of everything.  It’s better to do it correctly the first time!
